Actor Henrikson To Be Honored At Derby City Film Festival

by Rick Howlett on February 16, 2012

The fourth annual Derby City Film Festival begins tomorrow at the Clifton Center. Fifty-six entries from around the world will be screened during the two-day event.

In addition to the screenings, awards will be presented to films or actors in seven categories and a lifetime achievement award will go to actor Lance Henrikson, who also stars in one of the feature film entries, It’s in the Blood, produced by Louisville natives Sean Elliot and Scooter Downey.

The 71-year-old Henrikson says he wants to try his hand next at comedy, after years of mostly playing the heavy in horror, action and science fiction films.

“I don’t know how many ways I can die anymore and make it interesting,” he joked. “I’ve been boiled in oil, I’ve been burned, shot, hung. You name it, man. They always seem to look at me when I go to a meeting and say ‘oh, this guy would be great for that role, we’ll kill him at the end, you know.'”

Henrikson will also take part in some of the festival’s panel discussions.
